Yesterday it was my turn to host the fortnightly Sew Wot get-together. After a weekend away, it was a bit of a rush, but some baking got done for morning tea, I flipped the duster here and there, and Robin whizzed around with the vacuum cleaner. Whew – just in time before the ladies started arriving.
They all look very serious
Mary was away on her trip to Australia, and she had several quilts to take over for family members. The rest of us settled down to stitch, knit, and chat the morning away. Just a little Show and Tell this time.
Remember Helen’s quilt top from last month, stitched from long forgotten blocks she started making for her baby daughter about 30 years ago? It is now machine quilted and Helen spent the morning hand stitching the binding down. Then it will be put in her Granny Box for future babies.

Carol brought along a pretty baby quilt made with feed sack reproduction fabrics. This will be donated to a worthy cause as a donation quilt.

Although not new, I was rather taken with Heather B’s selvedge bag. I still have a bag of selvedges to deal with, so perhaps I should be starting new project to use them up.

I had another finish too, a small baby quilt with cute little animals. Turned out well, I think.
It was lovely to meet up with the Sew Wot ladies again, catch up with all their news, and see what projects they are working on.
